Notes

Abstract: There are many theories as to why the biological process of aging takes place. The free radical theory postulates that organisms age due to the buildup of free radical damage over time. Free radicals are any number of atoms or molecules that have an unpaired electron in their outer shell. For biological organisms, free radical damage is associated with oxidative damage. Antioxidants act as reducing agents that limit oxidative damage. In theory, reducing oxidative damage should increase the lifespan of an organism. Free radicals are only one factor in the aging process. Another key contributor to aging lies within genes. Organisms are preprogrammed to age and eventually die to ensure that evolution can occur. Humans age progressively over time due to the presence of protein ∆50 lamin A.
